The quilt with no name........

 Holiday vacation
ended yesterday, I tried 
to stretch it out just a few hours 
longer...
 But I had to start
printing orders so back to work
I went...
 Did you all have a wonderful
holiday?
I enjoyed everyday of it!
Just got back from picking 
up my basket quilt -
Isn't it just absolutely breathtaking
beautiful????
She does such a lovely job!
Well now I need to give it a trim
and go buy some binding for it
&
come up with a wonderful name!
Have a great weekend!
&
if by chance you won that
powerball,
please remember me
when you are spreading some joy.... :)

Day Nine of Christmas Joy....

 Goodness here we
are 
the second day 
of Christmas week...
I found this glass
cabinet in a warehouse
somewhere in Oklahoma
(really was way out in the country),
there was a matching one
with legs,
so wish I had brought it now...
I want to share with you all
a recipe
I made up!
Now that is amazing!!
but they are so good and so very healthy 
for you!
Mix the following:
1 cup flour, 1/4 cup wheat germ, 1/4 cup bran or oat flour,
1 cup oats, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 tsp salt,
1 tsp baking soda, 2 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp cinnamon,
1 tsp pumpkin pie seasoning (or another tsp of
cinnamon).
A small hand full of pecans, dried coconut, dried cranberries,
light raisins, walnuts, 1/2 apple diced
add whatever else you would like.
On some of the items I use a 
large handfull............. 

In 1 cup of almond milk add 2 tsp vinegar and let
sit while you do the dry ingredients.

Wet ingredients - 2 eggs, 1 tsp coconut oil  (melted), 2 T honey,
milk.  Add to the dry ingredients, 
mix just until blended.
I use large muffin pans, fill cup liners, I get about
9 muffins.  I freeze them and will eat
about 1/2 muffin at break time.

Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or the toothpick
comes out clean.
Have a wonderful 2nd day of
Christmas week!

Day Eight of Christmas Joy.........

I read somewhere,
sorry I don't remember
where,
during these trying 
times 
as the housewife
to try to make
our homes
a peaceful, joyful
and lovely place to come
home to......
really I think I 
have tried to do that
very thing 
forever,
I love fixing up
our home..
I was so busy this past
year with my little business,
I haven't gotten
much done
but in the last few 
weeks I have worked
really hard to spruce
things up..
These photos aren't the
best, that shelf is
6 feet long and
about 8 feet up on the wall.
I am working on a
new cross-stitch piece 
to go underneath it
I would love a real
cozy country style quilt
to hang on the little quilt rack,
will see about that....
I hope you 
enjoyed the first 
day of Christmas week!

Day Seven of Christmas Joy.....

 This is my little 
tree
with my woolly ornaments...
 I hope Santa likes
his tree
&
leaves some very nice presents!
Its snowing big beautiful
flakes now,
last night at this time
we took a walk around the
neighborhood enjoying the lights.
I hope you have a wonderful
Christmas week!
Elizabeth Ann
PS
Did you try the overnight 
oatmeal?
I had blueberry & walnut
this morning
&
if you need a snack at nighttime,
just add a bit of 
whipped cream.....

Day Six of Christmas Joy.....

 Took some pictures
of 
a few things 
in the bedroom
this morning,
still cloudy
&
raining 
here 
but at least the snow
is gone for a few days...
 I got this cabinet
this fall,
wasn't sure if I like
the color 
but
I absolutely love it now!
Have you tried overnight oatmeal
yet????
I made a sample 
of just plain
&
then I added 
cranberries & walnuts
when I heated it.
All I can say is YUM!
I'm going to try 
this carrot one next,
whipped cream looks
pretty tempting too.....

Day Five of Christmas Joy....

 Our tree this year....
I was thinking we might need
a new one,
this one is nine foot tall 
but very skinny.
 These are some of 
the new ornaments,
my goal was 12
but I got 5 done
and another little
piece that will go into
a frame.
I love these Santa
pieces.....
I think this one is
my favorite,
well he is right up there 
with the Santa with the quail...
I just realized there is 
another one with a bunny,
I need to find the pattern for that...... now...
